Karnak-Temple - Obelisk of Queen Hatshepsut
Luxor & Karnak

Behind the fourth pylon you stand in front of the huge obelisk of Hatshepsut.

With a height of 29.5 m, it is the highest still upright obelisk in Egypt, and its weight of 323 tons may give an impression of the technical perfection and effort needed to bring this single piece of stone obelisk from the Aswan quarry more than 200 km away to Karnak and finally erect it absolutely vertically on its obelisk base.
